Yep, I understood that. It's just that I cannot reproduce it. For me
(smbmount on Redhat 6.0 samba-client-2.0.5a-1.i386.rpm, Server
samba-2.0.5a on Redhat 6.0 or HP-UX) works as expected.

Yep. Seems that Redhat mixed up the permissions.

and you are using drummonm's password, I trust?
I'd check the samba server configuration and log files on the server
first, to see if there is something suspicious. At log level 3 you
should get a good idea, who the server thinks you are.
